Hurricane Ike threatens Bahamas, could enter GOM

Hurricane Ike’s threat to the Bahamas will be determined today as the category four storm carves out its treacherous path.

Catastrophic damage could befall the southern Bahamas on Sunday, central Bahamas on Monday and northern Bahamas on Tuesday, if the storm continues a westward course.

And although there were signs of the storm weakening yesterday, the affects would still be severely devastating if it were to drop to a category three hurricane with winds up to 130mph.

But meteorologists believe it is just as likely to strengthen to a category five storm with winds over 155mph, as it is to weaken.  source
